Garlic planted last fall is already up and 3 inches. Usually we do not see garlic shoots like this until April. Picture taken earlier today.
FREE SWEET POTATO STARTS
Each year the Faith & Grace Garden buys 500 extra sweet potato starts to share with local donation gardens (school, faith or community) at no cost. If you would like to reserve some starts for your garden, please reply to this message. Let us know how many you need and we will let you know when they will be ready for pick-up which will be later this spring.
